Nishitetsu began using a new railcar model for Tabito, their Dazaifu area sightseeing train. The company will use the five-carriage 3000 series instead of the six-carriage 8000 series, which had been in operation on the line for more than three years. An official inauguration ceremony took place at the Nishitetsu Fukuoka (Tenjin) Station on September 16. Source: Jiji News, 9/17/2017
